Killer Bee.


Trapped between the curtains and glass

you can feel remorse for this honey bee,

earlier he did nothing but glance and pass

at no time was there a sign he’d hurt thee.

Funny how something the size of an acorn

can bring a grown man to his knees,

it’s really nothing more than a flying thorn,

you could pinch it in a tissue with ease.

Sure, if you’re allergic it could kill you

but the same could also go for a peanut,

leave him alone if you don’t want him to,

maybe next time you’ll keep the damn door shut.

So don’t kill the lil’ guy who’s just buzzing by

and happened to admire your flowers,

all because you’re embarrassed by how,

you’ve been screaming and flailing for hours.

    1. Thanks you so much! I unfortunately have stopped doing awards. Only because I got busy and missed a couple different ones from people and now I feel it would be unfair. Like I was picking and choosing favorites. I hope u understand. Thank you so much again though ✌🏼🤓

    1. It’s something I think of when there’s a bug in the house. So quick to just smash it… Like really? Why not give him another shot outside. When I was young I would image a giant foot coming down and smashing me in instant Justice for my bug crushing actions. Lol.

      1. Yeah. Lol! Empaths can feel that way. But really the good thing is you wrote it in a way that now anybody who has read it is gonna probably think twice before squishing one. That’s the point! Bees all over the world owe you lots of thanks. 😉

      2. O don’t get me started on that. Us stealing honey is what is leading a lot of bees to become malnourished!! Bees are now dying suddenly due to fatigue. Beekeepers just replace honey with corn syrup which is no good for them. Sad. Pretty soon.. No bees no food…
